I experienced two written, two general and one interpersonal skills barrier to effective communication. The two written barriers were, a job application letter with constant use of errors and a formal letter with inappropriate structure and language. The two general barriers were, a presentation with inaccurate information and a presentation given with background distractions. Finally, the interpersonal barrier was a presentation given with the incorrect tone of voice and body language respectively.
Within the group discussions, I realised I would have to say something to get a mark which meant I had to raise the volume of my voice.

I already knew how to work Power Point. regardless I still kept to the "rules" of presentations. these are things like; not putting to much information onto a slide, having a constant colour scheme and not over-doing the transitions and animations. I also had to pluck up my conifdence to deliver the presentation this increased my verbal skills in front of a group, listening to other peers and giving effective feedback and i have increased my graphic and text manipulation a little.

I believe in the last half term I have made a lot of progress in a sense that, I now know what is expected of me, consequently I now know that my attendance and punctuality must correct in order for to me excel. I believe I have good determination and am beginning to improve on my time management.

R U D Dz
I never thought that this class had anything to do with learning about the actual components of a computer. Never-the-less, I have learnt a lot about where computer parts go and their names but more importantly how they connect. I also learnt about the health and safety aspects on working on computers even when there is no power going to the system such as a Static Mat.
I could use what I have learnt in everyday life for things such as improving and fixing my computer if it ever breaks or if I want to change the operating system I know how though the BIOS. I now have a good understanding of computer components and how hardware and software works.
